    This soup was disappointing. For such a great mixture of vegetables the broth was unbelievably bland. The meatballs too.

    Peppers are no friends of mine, they have a strange effect on my system. Is there another good vegetable substitute for this one? When I was little I used to fish out frikadelki and skip the broth, which made my mother a little miffed.
